How prepared are you to detect fraud if it slips through the cracks, or even detect fraudulent activity?
All organizations are at risk of fraud, each with its own way of preventing it such as implementing specific policies, procedures, programs and training. However, preventive measures cannot guarantee that fraud will not be committed.
Fraudulent acts by individuals can negatively impact the company’s reputation and incur significant legal costs, and lead to incarceration, not to mention the downfall of the entire organization.

The page is called the “ACA Information Center for Applicable Large Employers (ALEs),” but the Internal Revenue Service said Sept. 23 that it will provide information and resources for employers of all sizes. The information center has sections for employers to determine whether they are an ALE under the health care law, along with resources for ALEs and outreach materials.
Under the employer mandate, or shared-responsibility provisions, ALEs must provide full-time employees with affordable health care coverage that meets minimum-value standards or potentially face penalties. They also must report on their offers of minimum essential coverage to employees. Both ACA provisions are in effect for 2015.
